Hi This is happening to us and I called Rinnai... they suggested that if anyone either in our apartment or an ajoining one has painted walls or varnished a floor that the convection heater picks up the smell and the only way to get rid of it is to burn it off by running the heater for several hours in a well ventalated room...

I am going to try it tomorrow.

will let you know

SOURCE: Bad gas smell when heater is operating

I would call him back out. It sounds like a gas line is loose or the vent is not on properly

Have it checked properly - sometimes the reg won't open fully, but the heater will still run, but with improper combustion resulting in a funny smell.

Smell emitting from gas heater


Carbon monoxide is completely odourless and every sort of combustion of a carbon or hydrocarbon fuel produces carbon monoxide. That is why heaters should not be used without adequate and efficient ventilation and heaters should be kept in good order because efficient combustion produces less and inefficient combustion produces more.

Inefficient combustion and the need for service can often be recognised by the characteristic blue flame being tinged with yellow.
Heaters burning inefficiently often produce a smell for the sensitive or stinging eyes but that is not caused by carbon monoxide.

The gas itself is also odourless and the characteristic smell is added to warn people of leaks. I think the added gas smell tends to settle or separate from the liquid gas to some extent so there will be times when it is so concentrated it isn't entirely neutralised by the burning process, at least that is my theory.

Gas smells of kerosine


I have the same issue. According to the furnace repairman the duct for the fan inside the unit is rusted out causing it to burn very dirty and produce that smell. In my case the furnace needs to be replaced. Hopefully you're more lucky than I. Hope this helps
